NEWS: GM recalling 524,000 vehicles in two new recalls
Detroit News  @ October 3, 2014

OCT 2014 -- General Motors Co. said Friday it is recalling 524,000 vehicles in two new recall campaigns — including 290,000 U.S. SUVs for loose nuts that have been linked to three crashes and two injuries.

On Monday, GM said it was recalling 120,000 2010-15 Cadillac SRX SUVs in China and Canada for suspension issues, but wouldn’t say how many vehicles were affected in the United States. GM said Friday the recall include 290,107 2010-15 Cadillac SRX and 2011-12 Saab 9-4X SUVs in the United States to make sure rear toe link adjuster bolts are properly tightened.

GM said loose notes could result in a loose joint and worn threads that could cause the toe adjuster link to separate. Dealers will inspect for the condition and, if necessary, will remove them and install a new link assembly. Unsold vehicles are being checked for proper torquing before being sold. GM is aware of three crashes and two injuries as result of this condition.

GM also said it is recalling nearly 90,000 2013-15 Chevrolet Spark models in the U.S. because rust can cause the secondary hood latch striker to stick in the open position. If the primary latch is not closed, the hood could open unexpectedly. These vehicles, imported from South Korea, were manufactured with a secondary hood latch that may prematurely rust at the latch pivot, causing the striker to get stuck out of position and preventing the striker from properly engaging the hood latch.

The new recalls means GM has issued at least 71 separate recalls in 2014. It means GM North America has called back 26.5 million vehicles in the United States and at least 29.9 million worldwide.

About 13,000 of these unsold vehicles are subject to a stop sale at U.S. dealerships and will not be delivered until repairs are made. Customers will be notified by letter about the recall and dealers will replace the hood striker with an improved part when parts are available .

GM told NHTSA in March it learned of three incidents in the United Kingdom of the hoods opening without warning. During its investigation, GM learned that in November 2013 the part failed a component level corrosion test. By February, GM had determined that the anti-rust coating was “deficient and did not meet GM’s requirements.” A change to a better coating was implemented on July 31. GM said it had 10 warranty reports of the problem in the United States.

GM is not aware of any crashes or injuries. as a result of this condition.

The Justice Department is investigating GM’s handling of a delayed ignition switch recall of 2.6 million older Chevrolet Cobalts, Saturn Ions and other cars linked to at least 23 deaths. The Securities and Exchange Commission, 45 state attorneys general and Canadian officials are also investigating.

GM paid a record-setting $35 million fine to NHTSA in May for delaying its ignition recall and agreed to up to three years of intense monitoring by NHTSA.

Automakers have recalled nearly 50 million vehicles this year, shattering the prior all-time record of 30.8 million vehicles recalled in 2004

NEWS: GM calls back 822,000 vehicles in 6 new campaigns
Detroit News  @ July 24, 2014

JULY 2014 -- General Motors Co. said Wednesday it is recalling 822,685 vehicles worldwide — including 717,950 vehicles in the United States — in six new recall campaigns.

In the latest of a long string of callbacks, most are for minor problems. None are related to ignition switch defects that have plagued the automaker.

The recalls mean GM North America has issued a record 60 recall campaigns this year affecting 28.77 million vehicles worldwide and 25.48 million in the United States. GM revised downward its June 30 recall of Malibus, Impalas and other vehicles for ignition switch problems by 1.02 million vehicles to 6.6 million worldwide.

The biggest recall announced Wednesday covers 475,000 newer cars and trucks worldwide (414,333 in the U.S.) with power height-adjustable driver or front passenger seats. A bolt that secures the seat could fall out, letting the seat move up and down. Affected models include the 2011-12 Chevrolet Camaro; 2010-12 Chevrolet Equinox and GMC Terrain; 2011-12 Buick Regal and LaCrosse; and 2010-12 Cadillac SRX. GM is aware of one crash and three injuries linked to the defect. Dealers will replace the bolt.

MORE RECALL INFO: 

“These recalls signify how we’ve enhanced our approach to safety,” said Jeff Boyer, GM’s vice president of Global Vehicle Safety. “We are bringing greater rigor and discipline to our analysis and decision-making. If we identify an issue — large or small — that might affect the safety of our customers, we will act decisively.”

GM had decided on four of the recalls last Tuesday, and GM CEO Mary Barra disclosed the higher total before a Senate committee.

Eric Ibara, director of residual values for Kelley Blue Book’s KBB.com, said GM’s latest recalls “involve models that are currently being sold by the various GM brands, unlike earlier recalls on discontinued models. Going forward, attention will be focused on whether sales and values are impacted on these models.”

More than half of GM’s 29 million vehicles recalled this year are ignition-switch related, including 2.6 million Cobalts, Ions and other cars linked to at least 13 deaths. GM has recalled nearly all nameplates of 2014 models except the Volt and some versions of models like the Spark EV.

Other recalls announced Wednesday include:

■ 124,008 -- 2014 Chevrolet Caprice; 2014 Chevrolet SS; 2014-2015 Chevrolet Silverado LD and HD; 2013-14 Cadillac ATS; 2014 Cadillac CTS, 2014 Cadillac ELR; 2013-14 Buick Encore; and 2014-15 GMC Sierra LD and HD vehicles. Some may have an incomplete weld on the seat-hook bracket assembly. If the weld is incomplete, dealers will replace the lower seat track. Less than 1 percent of welds are expected to require fixes. GM is unaware of crashes or injuries.

MORE RECALL INFO: 

■ 120,426 -- 2011-13 Buick Regals and 2013 Chevrolet Malibus that use two bulbs in each front turn signal. The driver gets a rapidly flashing turn signal arrow in the instrument cluster if both bulbs in one turn signal are burned out; but if only one bulb on either side burns out, there would be no signal to the driver. Dealers will reprogram the body control module. GM knows of no crashes, injuries or complaints.

MORE RECALL INFO: 

■ 57,242 -- 2014 Chevrolet Impalas equipped with belt-drive electric power steering. Owners may experience reduced or no power-steering assist at start-up or while driving due to a poor electrical ground connection. If power steering is lost, a warning message is displayed on the driver information center and a chime sounds. The cars will revert to manual steering mode, requiring greater to steer, particularly at low speed. Dealers will check the ground and update the power steering control module’s software. GM is aware of one crash but no injuries.

MORE RECALL INFO: 

■ 1,919 -- 2014-15 Chevrolet Sparks imported from Korea assembled with lower control arm bolts that were not fastened to specification. The condition could result in separation of the lower control arm from the steering knuckle, resulting in loss of steering control. Dealers will make sure the bolts are properly tightened. GM knows of no crashes or injuries.

MORE RECALL INFO: 

■ 22 -- 2015 Chevrolet Tahoe/Suburban and GMC Yukon/Yukon Denali vehicles in the U.S. Roof carriers may have been attached with the wrong retaining nuts, resulting in holes or tears in the roof rail air bags if they deploy.

NEWS:   GM recalls 15,000 Cadillac SRX; Roll-away issue
DETROIT NEWS -- December 21,  2011

DECEMBER 2011 -- General Motors Co. is recalling about 15,000 Cadillac SRX vehicles worldwide to address transmission issues that could allow a parked vehicle to roll away.

The recall includes 8,789 2010-2011 Cadillac SRX crossovers in the United States that were assembled in Mexico.

GM immediately inspected all vehicles - and identified 11 out of 710 vehicles that had improperly assembled shift cables. All of those were repaired before being sold.

GM found three warranty claims for possibly related incidents - all of which occurred before 1,000 miles of driving. It later found another nine warranty claims that may be related.

GM dealers will inspect the transmission shift cables to make sure it is properly routed. GM will notify dealers next month.

GM spokesman Alan Adler asid the recall covers about 4,000 SRX models in China. Chinese media had reported the recall in China was of nearly 10,000 vehicles.

DECEMBER 2011 -- General Motors (GM) is recalling certain model year 2010-2011 Cadillac SRX vehicles manufactured from October 26, 2008, through June 23, 2011, for failing to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard Number 114, "Theft Protection." These vehicles may have a transmission shift cable that was improperly installed and may come out of the transmission bracket. The driver may be unable to shift the transmission out of gear, resulting in no motion or the shifter may inaccurately indicate that the transmission is in park when it is not, allowing the vehicle to roll away and cause a possible crash. Gm will notify owners, and dealers will ensure that the transmission shift cable is properly routed and seated in the transmission cable bracket. This service will be performed free of charge. The safety recall is expected to begin during January 2012. 11V-595


JUNE 2011 -- General Motors is recalling certain model year 2011 Cadillac SRX passenger vehicles for failing to conform to the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard no. 208, "Occupant Crash Protection." The airbags are programmed to turn off the right side roof-rail airbag if the passenger sensing system determines that the right front passenger seat is unoccupied. The right rear occupant may not be protected and suffer injuries in certain frontal and side crashes. GM dealers will reprogram the sensing and diagnostic module free of charge. The safety recall is expected to begin on or about June 17, 2011.  11V-308


NEWS:   GM to recall 47,000 Cadillac SRXs to fix air bags

YAHOO NEWS -- June 10, 2011 – Motors Co. is recalling more than 47,000 Cadillac SRX crossover vehicles in the U.S. because of a problem with the passenger side air bags.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, in documents posted on its website Friday, said that the right side head protection air bag won't inflate in a crash if no one is in the front seat.

As a result, a right-side passenger in the back seat may not be protected and could get hurt in a front or side crash, the agency said in the documents. GM said no injuries have been reported.

Air bag sensors in the 2011 SRX, an SUV-like vehicle that's more nimble and efficient because it's built on car underpinnings, are programmed to turn off the passenger side air bags if no one is in the right-front seat, the agency said. But that conflicts with the owner's manual, which says the air bags will inflate regardless whether the front seat is occupied.

"Because the actions of the air bag and the owner's manual do not match, the vehicle is not compliant" with federal safety standards, NHTSA said.

The recall affects SRXs made between Feb. 2, 2010 and April 29 of this year and sold in North America. Dealers will reprogram the air bag sensors to fix the problem free of charge. GM will notify owners by mail starting Friday.

MORE RECALL INFO:    Cadillac SRX


MAY  2010 -- General Motors is recalling certain model year 2010 Cadillac SRX equipped with a 2.8l V6 engine. If low octane (regular) fuel is used in the vehicle instead of the required high octane (premium) fuel as stated in the owner manual and on the fuel filler door, the combination of regular fuel usage and aggressive driving maneuvers may induce pre-ignition. If pre-ignition occurs, you may hear a pinging or knocking sound from the engine. If the vehicle continues to be driven after the onset of this noise, a connecting rod or piston may break, resulting in engine damage, and perhaps engine failure, which would disable the vehicle increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will reprogram the engine control module free of charge. The safety recall is expected to begin on or before June 11, 2010.   GM's recall campaign number is N100093. 10V-223

DETROIT (AP)  (2/10/05) -- GM is recalling 19,924 Cadillac XLR coupes, Cadillac SRX SUVs and Pontiac Grand Prix sedans from the 2004 model year because the accelerator pedal may not work properly in extremely cold temperatures, requiring more braking. GM spokesman said temperatures far below freezing could cause a spring to break, which means the pedal may take longer than the maximum 3 seconds allowed by federal regulations to come back up after it is depressed.
